AI in Leadership Program at University
Marietjie du Plessis, Teacher, South Africa

We have used AI in a leadership program at the university - after discovering their authentic leadership qualities, ai was utilized for research topics and projects on campus. Amazing results: national and international publications, three projects (hostels, marketing, and managing supervisors) have been implemented! The energy created through the process was wonderful in the creation of a real learning community.

Marietjie, thanks for your response to my inquiry on the use of AI in a university. What I have done so far, is to run a strengths based workshop for the senior leadership team at a university here in Canada. This week, I am following up with one on one interviews with participants. The topic is how to advance the "innovation" agenda which has been identified in the strategic plan.

The process that we follow is to ensure that staff/participants apply the AI research/methodology to enhance their immediate work environment.
That makes it more applicable to the research.
I presume that you make use of the soar to establish the existing strengths. This was used by one of our participants to do the strategic planning in the education department (faculty) to establish a new direction in research and teaching.
What is also useful is to acknowledge the "shadow" - (problem area's) and to also appreciate that. Although this may seem strange - it was proven that a new perspective on problem areas assist to manage these areas in a more constructive way. In many cases, problems lead to more innovative and creative ideas to solve - during the dream phase corrections are given to most of the problems - but then with the intention to solve.
Good luck. We have started our third year now.
